Install and run the Philips Device Manager.

Press and hold the [VOL+] button on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Philips Device Manager will show the device connected in repair mode. Release the [VOL+] button and follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-flash the firmware.

Disconnect the player when finished, and re-start it. It should briefly show initiallizing and then shut down.

Re-start the player again, and it should show "updating", then start up.

Occasionally this will cure the problem. If it doesn't try it 2 or 3 times.

If it still doesn't work, then unfortunately you will have to take it back, as there is no other known cure.

When I try to turn on the MP3 (Philips GoGear Mix) I see a symbol of a battery and then it shuts down. When I plug the MP3 to the computer it shows it is fully charged. What shell I do? Thanks


I have had a GoGear for a while and those things have horrible firmware and are very fragile. I have experienced the same issue myself, so I suggest leaving it plugged in for several hours no matter what the screen says to try and let it charge. It should charge up. If not, try charging via a usb wall charger, which should allow usage of the player while it charges.

I am charging the battery of a brand new purchase. Do I need to let the battery charge fully, ie; the 3.5 hours before I can use it? I keep getting a, "Key LOCKED, system shutting down message on the...


For the initial charging, YES, you need to follow what's on the manual. If it requires you to charge the player for 4 hours as the initial charging, you need to leave it connected to the wall outlet for 4 hours, so that the battery life will become longer.

Though the key is locked, it's still charging. As long as it's connected to the outlet.

Thank you.

Whenever I go to turn on my Philips Gogear audio video mp3 player, it shows the welcome screen but it doesn't go to the GoGear or the updating screens. Also, whenever I plug it into my computer through the USB cord, the charging screen doesn't show and it does not show that it is connected on 'My Computer'

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Make sure you have installed Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

With the player powered off:

Press and hold VOL+ whilst connecting to the PC.

PC will show drive as Recovery Device (or similar) and device manager will start and show "Your device has an error...."

Click repair and follow the on-screen prompts.

When prompted, disconnect the player and power on.

Player will show "Loading" and then shut down.

Power on again.

Player will show "Updating" and then shut down again.

Player can now be powered up as normal.

Restart

Initializing keeps flashing on and off in a blue screen


Uninstall the existing Device Manager.
Download the latest Device Manager software for this device from www.p4c.philips.com and install this.

Repair the player using the updated software.

If the problem still persists, try the update once more.

If this still doesn't work, then the main PCB is faulty and will have to be replaced.

If the repair does work, the player briefly shows a message on screen when restarted, then shuts down again.

You then need to restart the player again and it shows Updating, and then goes to the main menu.
